Model United Nations Masterclass

Learn award-winning techniques to improve your Model UN skills

General Assembly: March 26th at 1:00PM ET
Crisis: April 9th at 1:00PM ET

We’re taking our most impactful lessons and showing you how to start winning awards more consistently at Model UN conferences, from local one-day conferences to college-run four-day conferences. Don’t miss it.

All-American Model UN has been training high school students for ten years. Our proven coaching has produced some of the best Model UN students in the country, and our teams have set a new expectation for performance. Since the return to in-person conferences after COVID, our teams have competed at VAMUN, BosMUN, and NAIMUN. Over 98% of our students have won awards at those conferences.

This pair of masterclasses draws the curtain back on how and why our students perform at such high standards.

The first half of each masterclass will review our award winning training material and the second half will take students through common scenarios faced in Model UN committees. For example, what strategy should you use if you’re in a smaller block in a general assembly committee? How would you respond if the crisis room is ignoring your crisis notes? These specific instances are difficult to teach simply by reviewing material, so we’ll be bringing our college alumni to discuss.
